IGN: NYCC 09 Spore Galactic Adventures

Posted by ballightning on February 7, 2009

US, February 6, 2009 – Maxis’s Caryl Shaw was on hand at today’s Comic Con to show off the latest build of the upcoming Spore expansion,Spore: Galactic Adventures. The new expansion significantly enlarges the space portion of the original game, and even grants players the opportunity to create and share their own planetary adventures with other folks in the Spore community. In place of the rather tedious space missions from the original game, players will now encounter a wealth of user-created missions that require your species to actually descend to the surface of the planet and undertake a variety of interesting tasks.

The game will, of course, ship with several pre-made adventures from Maxis, but the idea here is for players to create their own challenges. This is done with a very simple context tool that lets you assign goals to certain objects. Simply click on an object in the game world and you can assign a goal to it. It might be that you want an NPC alien to wander around and attack the player on sight. Or that you want the player to meet a certain member of an alien race. Or that you want the player to find, collect or deliver a certain object. You can even stack multiple objectives together, giving the player a task to meet an alien species, kill a certain number of their rivals, recover an artifact from within the enemies’ camp and return it to the aliens it belongs to.
